St.Kitts was so much fun!!! Just like my last blog A DAY IN BAHAMAS … which I mean if you have not read it.. you should! We went to St.Kitts on a Royal Caribbean Cruise and only had 12 hours of the island. My immediate reaction was WOW this place is BEAUTIFUL!!! I LOVE mountains and this place had a lot of them. So our day started by walking into the port and since we had time before our ATV tour we decided to walk around the shops of the port which they had a lot of here. So what was interesting to me is almost all the shop owners are from India… and yes I ask where they were from to confirm and they came here to St.Kitts for the money. St.Kitts is actually an island in the West Indies I also found out. Anyways so money there is good when it comes to America dollars because one American dollar is Equal to 2.75 dollars in St.Kitts which is why you are able to talk down prices and items may seems cheap because technically they are getting about triple what we think we are paying. SO I guess thats good for both the person buying and the person selling.
It was then time to go on our tour!!! We took a bus taxis and it was just my family on this ATV tour which was AWESOME! But the cool thing is the taxis driver is like a tour guide as well! He took us around the island and told us facts, For example, how people keep monkeys as pets, how houses are expensive and small, and how the island is a complete circle and it only has one main road so if you stay on it you will just keep going in circles. So we finally get on our ATVs, The people who own the land had a bunch of goats and again because I am super curious all the time I asked why they had so many and they responded with fresh meat!
Anyways! haha We all got on our own ATV besides my mom and dad who shared… completely thankful because my mom prob would’ve died it was hard and she has no balance. So the ATV Tour guide takes you in a circle to make sure you can do it and you understand how an ATV works and then you are off!!! SO again remember when I said I liked mountains and St.Kitts HAD A LOT OF THEM… OH and Volcanos… ya we went up on inclines a lot on the tour and down and the roads are not perfectly flat they were rocking and bumping…. but the VIEWS WERE 100% WORTH IT!!! We road around a forest for a while and then our tour guide took us to the oldest Volcano on the island. We then ended up at a fort.
This fort used to be a Millionare’s house that was just never finished being built, it had so many rooms and a stage for performances. The view from this place was amazing as well!
This was our half way point of the trip so we relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful view. Also, this island has A LOT OF COWS ROMING!!! They hide in the bushes and some of them are tided up (prob for meat?)
So we headed back to where we started and on the way back we saw wild monkeys, ate guava off the trees, and saw more cows! Also, I followed my brother who went into a HUGE MUD POOL AND I GOT SOAKED IN MUD… kinda refreshing… I gotta attempt.
So we made it back to base and we cooled off with some pink lemonade and waited for our taxis bus back to the port. I would recommend this tour if you are an outdoor adventurous!
Ryan and I finished our day off just walking around and being called “Husband and Wife” by all the islanders and taking photos with monkeys haha
